    Japanese knife imports (http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/) also offers some nice starting knives (Gesshin Uraku, Gesshin Kagero and Suisin Inox Western). However, JKI won't be shipping again for around a month, the proprietors are in Japan for the month.
    i dont like circle handles... like Gesshin.. i dont know.. may be because i am begginer!!
    santoku is perfect for me... i try santoku and i think it is better for me!!
    do you know other sites to order knives?

    No other website offers so good a deal on postage as JCK does.

    I dont like Hiromoto, I had one and it is very low. What do you like about it? That you have chosen that ?

    That's fine, some people just don't like them. Gesshin Kagero and Suisin Inox Western both have western handles. If you have your eyes set on the santoku, go for it. It's relatively inexpensive.

    I had 24cm chefs knife.

    I sold it cause 48 mm in height is way too low for me. Now I use knives that are minimum 52, and it feel pretty much on the borderline for me.

    And I think even in this price bracket there are better cutting knives than Hiromoto, and the steel well I dont want to say its bad, but its tasteless.

    Not true about santoku lacking a point. They exist. Here's my Kiya 180mm (posted recently re: polishing) and I'd say the shape is kind of like a miniature Takeda gyuto, isn't it? I think of it as a nakiri - good at chopping and manoeuvrable, though not quite as thin as my nakiri - but with that point, and you can even rock with it some too. Probably the one I grab the most, though this has something to do with me not being too worried about care with this one.

    That retailer will only ship those particular knives to addresses the U.S. (why that is, I don't know). I would probably stick with Japanese Chef's Knife (quick and inexpensive shipping all over the world, and a large selection of relatively inexpensive offerings); or you might find something nice that's close to your budget in the buy/sell/trade area area.

    I can't really help you with your decision, as I don't own a santoku and haven't tried many knives in your price range. The JCK CarboNext series is frequently recommended, but the santoku (180mm) is over your budget a little at $100.

    How are you planning on keeping your new purchase sharp? This deserves consideration as well.

    Welcome to the forum, and good luck with your decision.

    Yes - get a combination 1000/6000 whetstone.
